7 Mary s: Monday, April 14, 4:00 - 7:00 PM Saturday, April 19, 10-11 AM (no afternoon confession on April 19) Page Three St. Mary s Parish , Clinton, New York Faith Formation During the weeks of Lent, we are preparing to cele-brate resurrection. Do you see any "foretastes of resurrec-tion joy" around you? In nature? In the love of your fam-ily and friends? In the care and concern of neighbors? In your own heart? If you do, you will be following in the footsteps of Jesus and all the saints. These signs of resur-rection may not be as dramatic as Lazarus' rising from the dead, but they are just as real.
